RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN AVIATION LAW

Questions of coverage in aviation insurance are considered along with the discovery rule in connection with the statue of limitations. Attention is also given to the negligence law and damages, the principle of strict liability, the primary jurisdiction of regulatory agencies, aspects of air carrier liability, decisions involving a rigid application of use taxes on aircraft owners, and airport zoning and environmental regulation. Statutory and administrative developments are examined, taking into account the new traffic management system adopted by the FAA, noise level standards for turboject-engine powered aircraft and large propeller-driven aircraft, the Civil Aeronautics Board Air Freight Liability and Claims Rules, and the signing into law of the Airport and Airway Development Act Amendment of 1976.
